Champion beats runners-up in the duel between city rivals: AC Milan won the 232nd Derby della Madonnina against Inter 3-2 (1-1) and initially took the lead in Serie A. Rafael Leāo (28’/60′) and World Champion Olivier Giroud (54′) fired Milan to victory as the Rossoneri remained undefeated for their 21st game in a row.
Inter scored in an entertaining game through Marcelo Brozovic (21′) and former Bundesliga top scorer Edin Dzeko (67′). At 36, Bosnian Dzeko became Inter’s oldest goalscorer in a league comparison with Milan.
National player Robin Gosens came on as a substitute at Inter in the 84th minute. At Milan, Malick Thiaw, who was signed by Schalke 04 on Monday, followed the game from the reserve bench.
Record champions Juventus Turin, like Inter, are still looking for their rhythm. On the fifth day of the game, coach Massimiliano Allegri’s team only drew 1-1 (1-1) at old rivals Fiorentina. While Juve remain unbeaten, they have only won two league games.
Arkadiusz Milik, who was signed from Marseille shortly before the end of the transfer, once played for Bayer Leverkusen and FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga, scored for Juventus in the 9th minute. The template came from the Frankfurt European Cup hero Filip Kostic, who had also joined the Bianconeri in the summer.
Christian Kouame (29th) managed to equalize for the more active hosts. Former Frankfurt and Real professional Luka Jovic awarded a hand penalty for Fiorentina (44th).
